“Italian gun brand Beretta is set to launch a hunting shotgun by Apple designer Marc Newson next month,” Dezeen reports.
“Marc Newson has designed a version of the double-barrelled 486 Parallelo shotgun for Italian firearms manufacturer Beretta, a company established in 1526,” Dezeen reports. “Newson’s design will be released on 13 November, when the gun is officially unveiled at an event in London.”
“It will be a version of the existing 486 Parallelo – a 12-gauge side-by-side game gun that features a round body receiver and lavish engravings,” Dezeen reports. “Tech giant Apple announced that Newson had joined its design team in September. Since then the Australian designer has launched a draught beer machine for Heineken, adding to his diverse portfolio of projects.”
